CLOT x Medicom Toy 1000% “Polar” Bearbrick

Following his effort in curating Medicom Toy’s Bearbrick Worldwide Tour 2 in Shanghai this past September, CLOT x Medicom Toy 1000% have released the “Polar” Bearbrick designed by Edison Chen.

The Bearbrick’s white body offers minimalist white body save for hits of color in its ears, for a clean overall look. Edison’s personal touch can be seen in the Bearbrick’s facial profile, hand drawn by Edison himself, as well as the “I’m cold” quote printed across the toy’s leg which pokes fun at Edison’s more commonly used phrases.

Packaged in a matching white box that portrays a sketch of the enclosed toy, the “Polar” Bearbrick is now available for purchase from CLOT’s online store for the retail price of $619 USD.
